Danse Russe




LibriVox recording of Danse Russe, by William Carlos Williams. For more information on our readers, please visit the catalog page: http://librivox.org/danse-russe-by-william-carlos-williams/.

Williams spent his life as a doctor practicing pediatric medicine in northern New Jersey, a few miles west of New York City. During the work day, between seeing patients, he often dashed off poems on the backs of blank prescription pads that he kept in his pocket. This particular poem was written in just such a spontaneous way, after seeing the Russian Ballet perform in Manhattan. Each of the 16 readers in this collection took the challenge to make the same kind of leap - reading it spontaneously.
(Summary by Alan Davis-Drake.)
